Tis the season, as they say, but not for Christmas cheer. Forget that. What I am talking about is the plethora of end-of-the-year lists that propagate this time of year.

So far in the past few weeks we have seen 2017’s best hotels, most popular delivery food, most watched shows on Netflix, highest paid musicians, top dog names, most followed models on Instagram, best places to work, most viral videos, Google Play and Spotify’s numerous 2017 lists, the most re-tweeted tweets, and the most-liked Instagram posts.

And now we can add Apple’s best and most popular apps, music, movies, TV shows, books and podcasts of 2017 to the, uh, well, list!
